Peace Boat’s 30,000 ton passenger liner will berth at Pier 35 in San Francisco on Wednesday, October 11, bringing onboard 1,000 people from Japan to take part in two days of people-to-people activities to build a culture of peace. Participants will engage in a variety of alternative tours and study programs put together with local civil society organizations, addressing a range of local and global social justice issues. The Bay Area is the second-to-last port of call on Peace Boat’s 54th Global Voyage, which has visited 18 countries before arriving to the United States. The voyage which left Japan on July 21 to circumnavigate the Earth has visited communities in Vietnam, India, Eritrea, Morocco, and Colombia.
The visit to San Francisco will be highlighted by a free onboard event, “Peace Revolution,” that is open to the public. Featuring both international and local music and dance performances (from Radio Active of Spearhead to New Zealand’s number one rated band, Rhombus), “Peace Revolution” will offer the people of San Francisco an opportunity to hear about the work of Peace Boat, as well as many local civil society organizations in the Bay Area.
